Aloo paratha with step by step pictures and video on how to roll parathas

Aloo Paratha a popular Indian flat bread stuffed with Potato masala, serves a perfect breakfast or lunch or dinner too. Aloo paratha takes place in my kitchen weekly once.
Some dishes we love to eat and some dishes though we do not like to eat, we make for our family members, some dishes we love to make and eat also. Aloo paratha, is the one which i  always love to make and eat too, and thankfully my hubby and kids love Aloo paratha. I learnt the recipe of making aloo paratha from my friend. You can add some grated paneer to this aloo mixture and make aloo paneer paratha. The main key to get perfect parathas is to keep the potato mixture moisture free. If it is loose with lots of moisture, then it will tear while rolling the parathas.
